if not better, atleast kharghar proved to be far more practical than bandra reclamation.

gordon the vids have been shot by a digicam, downloading them is the least you can do to watch stuff like that, considering mad monkey and i stood in the sun (leaving the nice seats in the shade)just to shoot them for people who weren't around, so stop cribbing. lol

a few observations:

hardly any significant difference between the 1101-1400 cc cars and the e zens? is it really worth the hassle of engine swaps and stuff?

1401-1600 cc pro stock cars almost as fast as the forced induction/nos cars, whats all the hype about? prob. the drivers relied way too much on the tricky stuff and forgot about the basics.

Awesome pics, dippy.

Last year, i believe there were 500+ participants.

This year, looks like not even half of that turned up.

Why so?? There must be a reason.

Hi,

I think its more due to the fact that there was only one driver per car allowed. Last year there were plenty of entries but not as many cars. Also the famous Bangy boys were missing(majority)

i met jd on saturday night i just visited to check out da cars and i saw a guy workin on laptop and the lotus elise and s2000 were parked and s2000's hood was open apparently some work was goin on.SO i went to the guy who was using the laptop and i asked him abt these cars he told me that the clutch had some problems then i gave him some of my information i had got from tbhp then i told him abt evo 6 and then a guy nearby told it was dis guy's car i thought that he was fooling me then i went talkin to that guy then i asked him if he participated in speedrun he told ya in da evo 6 i was like surprised and shocked then i told him about the track day and he even showed me some pics of track day. Guys i tell you he is a super cool and a down to earth guy. He had apparently come to kharghar to take the trial runs of both these cars i took his no then i told him if i can get in i ll call him and make him meet other bhpians but i had no chance to get in so missed it

I dont agree wid you we arent foolish to walk down the track we just wanted to see it peacefully but i think that this event is for rich guys not us

Good investment. His son will never be late for school.

Is the Lancer recently sold, because the Lancer pics is in the Track Day @ Chennai thread.
